It’s time again for Utah StoryCorps!


In July of this year the StoryCorps mobile recording booth and Utah Public Radio visited the Uintah Basin to gather local stories.


Now each week from September 2015 to August 2016, Utah Public Radio will be playing segments from these recordings.


Tune in during All Things Considered on Wednesdays at 3:30 & 4:30 p.m. and Thursdays during Morning Edition at 7:40 & 8:40 a.m.  to hear new Utah StoryCorps segments.


Want to learn more about StoryCorps? Check out their website.


Playing times are approximate, and may change based on the programs surrounding the segment.


New segments will also be posted below.


Alisha Weigle was born into a family of 46 children, with three mothers, and a father, in the Colorado City polygamous compound in Arizona.

"I was one of the few that went away and went to college in Cedar City," Alisha said. "I got a degree in education, but I also got my eyes opened in a big way as to what the real world was."

Martha Ham interviewed her friend Michelle Thomas in the StoryCorps booth in St. George in May, about her experiences during the nuclear bomb testing done at the Nevada test site, just over 100 miles from St. George during the Cold War.

In May and early June, Utah Public Radio was in St. George with the StoryCorps mobile bus. We've partnered with Dixie Regional Medical Center to bring you the stories from Southern Utah for your listening pleasure.

Beginning July 11 at 7:35 a.m. you can listen to the stories of Southern Utah: The National parks, the down-winders, the locals. Listen and learn, and join us on the journey of discovery.
